Veeam Software har blivit tilldelade två patent i USA för nyckelfunktioner i flaggskeppsprodukten Veeam Backup & Replication.

Det ena patentet (U.S. Patent No. 8,332,689 B2) berör den underliggande teknologin för Instant VM Recovery som möjliggör för Backup & Replication att återställa felande virtuella maskiner på två minuter. Det andra patentet (U.S. Patent No. 8,402,309 B2) berör teknologier som nyttjas av ett flertal av funktionerna i Backup & Replication - däribland SureBackup, Universal Application Item Recovery (U-AIR) och On-Demand Sandbox.

–  Under Veeams sjuåriga historia har vi konstant varit i framkant när det gäller virtuella dataskydd som är såväl kraftfulla som enkla att använda, och prisvärda. Dessa patent kan ses som en bekräftelse av Veeams innovationskraft. Vi förväntar oss även att ytterligare patent kommer att beviljas inom kort, för flera av våra tekniska innovationer, säger Ratmir Timashev, VD för Veeam

Veeam Awarded Two U.S. Patents for vPower Technologies: Instant VM Recovery and SureBackup

Patents Cover Instant VM Recovery, SureBackup, Universal Application Item Recovery, and On-Demand Sandbox; Awards are the Latest Milestone in Veeam’s Seven-Year History of Constant Innovation

Veeam® Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, today announced that it has been awarded two U.S. Patents for key capabilities within its flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication™. 

U.S. Patent No. 8,332,689 B2 covers the underlying technology that supports Instant VM Recovery™, which enables Veeam Backup & Replication to recover a failed virtual machine (VM) in as little as two minutes by starting up and running a VM directly from the backup. With Instant VM Recovery, users lose no time waiting for IT administrators to provision storage, extract the backup and copy it to production. Instead, the VM is up and running almost instantaneously.

U.S. Patent No. 8,402,309 B2 covers the underlying technology that supports additional, unique capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication, including SureBackup®, Universal Application Item Recovery (U-AIR®), and On-Demand Sandbox.

  • SureBackup: Eliminates risk through backup testing and recovery verification. The fully automated process lets users verify the recoverability of every backup of every VM, without additional hardware or administrative time and effort.
  • U-AIR: Enables quick, agent-free recovery of individual objects from any virtualized application. When users accidentally delete important e-mails or make other unintended changes, U-AIR helps administrators easily recover lost or damaged items.
  • On-Demand Sandbox: Runs VMs from existing backups in the safety of an isolated Virtual Lab. Instead of using dedicated resources, one can put backup storage to work to build a lab for software and patch testing, problem troubleshooting and other tasks.

“For seven years, Veeam has constantly been on the forefront of bringing new capabilities to virtual data protection with software that is powerful, easy-to-use and affordable. Being awarded these patents is a strong validation of our company’s strong history and culture of innovation,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. “To that end, we expect additional patents will be granted soon and are preparing to file new patent applications covering further technological innovations in our upcoming release of Veeam Backup & Replication v7.”
